Question Netscape 7 won't go online (ISDN)


I have some clue (but mine is a little different issue) in the postings by DavidPhillips, moderator in response to aethereal, member (I can only reference it w/ address in my Mozilla 0.7: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...=Netscape+ISDN).
But I can't get hold thoroughly of that info so soon. Wget, Ping, /etc/resolv.conf ...too little familiar with all of that. Will study man pages.
Problems that I am wrestling w/ R: some of my browsers on my Red Hat 7.1 do not consistently work. My connection is ISDN. AsusCom ISDNLink, PCI, accepted in RH7.1 under W6692-based card (W for Winbond).
Naimely:
Netscape 4.72 works OK mostly (unless something freezes him).
Mozilla 0.7 so far - so good.
Konqueror 2.1.1 so far - so good.
Lynx 2.8.4-9 so far - so good.
Netscape 7 - mostly doesn't work. Occasionally, just yesterday when I began posting, I was led to believe that all is fine (because NS 7 is the fresh install), since it suddenly started picking up all connections and performed fine online. And I like Netscape (I think it doesn't smell foul like MSIE with all the finacial filth of MS built on laziness and supine attitude that prevails among computer users as anywhere else; OK, at the least NS smells less foul...), and would like it to be my main browser (need all the other as well though). And I was in the middle of writing about this problem, so you can figure out I thought `Oh, it's fine now!'.
Since I am trying to build a server on my system with the solely development and testing purpose (Apache, PHP and MySQL) to try an create decent Websites, and I am totally new to it (3+ weeks R not much in this respect, R they?), I was wondering, could there be something in my RPM-Apache installation that causes trouble, and where to start looking?
If this might help to start from somewhere, I am pasting it from my konsole:
[root@localhost /root]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 127.0.0.1
[root@localhost /root]#
I will now go to my Windows and try: `ipconfig /all' (as in the posting I refer to above) from a command prompt and try to guess what `winipcfg' is and whether I have it.
In the meantime, thanx to anybody who'll lend their knowledge unselfishly, and good luck to everybody who R having similar problems.

Tried mozilla 1.2 yet? Netscape 7 is just mozilla with a lot of extra bloat

If im not mistaken you need to add a DNS adress (from DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 205.xxx.255.x line) to /etc/resolv.conf. Thats what i noticed just by reading through your post, cuz the only DNS you have in /etc/resolv.conf is your localhost. i think that might be the prob. Heres how my /etc/resolv.conf looks like..

search ciaoweb.it
nameserver 151.88.110.37
nameserver 151.92.2.35

I'll go and download Mozilla 1.2.
But it would be so great to learn what's happening in my system.
E.g. NS 7 works again tonite...
I guess it's b'cas this is rite tonite (mind that I touched nothin):
[root@localhost Test]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 205.xxx.255.x
nameserver 205.xxx.255.x
[root@localhost Test]#
(x's R my suntit.)
Keep Linuxing!

P.S. Post #3 added on WHILE I was posting my #4.
But it does coincide and seems to be the reason why the browsers wouldn't work.
Now, if only I new what happened?! B'cas I didn't change any since last nite...

In here must be the solution. These 1st lines R BEFORE loading http://localhost
[root@localhost Test]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 205.xxx.255.x
nameserver 205.xxx.255.x
[root@localhost Test]#
And this is AFTER loading loading http://localhost
[root@localhost Test]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 127.0.0.1
[root@localhost Test]#
But now I went back online and NS7 works and "cat /etc/resolv.conf" shows as at 1st...
BTW, these
nameserver 205.xxx.255.x
nameserver 205.xxx.255.x
R what I entered when configurin isdn4linux tools...
Maybe all will be fine from here.
But I thought, since we R talking about that /etc/resolv.conf file, maybe if somebody really knows these things, he gave us a hint where to look 4 mo info, what man ppg or info to look in & learn...
